Signal Output Range


The maximum signal swing expected is 1500 mV, due to an input Gaussian(=25 ns) dq/dt having total charge=360,000 e. The expected signal swing expected with a 1 MIP step charge is 165 mV. The maximum (not to exceed) output range is -.8 to 3.5 V.


The device has to have a linear response in the range of minimum and maximum ionization.
